I've installed and compiled Gentoo 1.0 R6 twice on my Duron system, and 
everything works until I get to Evolution (which I've never really gotten to 
work very well on other systems either, but I'd love to get it syncing with my 

When I go to the inbox, then Tools > Mail Settings, I get "Application 
"evolution-mail" has crashed due to a fatal error."  I then get a second error 
that says "The Evolustion component that handles folders of type "mail" has 
unexpectedly quit.  You will need to quit Evolution and restart in order to 
access that data again."  

When I look at the error messages sent to the terminal, I see 

Gtk-WARNING **: gtk_signal_disconnect_by_data(): could not find handler 
containing data (0x8149200)

evolution-shell-WARNING **: Error changing interactive status of componenet 
OAFIID:GNOME_Evolution_Mail_ShellComponet to FALSE -- 

I'm not doing anything wacky with optimizations or whatever.  My use list has:

ssl nls mitshm perl python esd gif sdl vorbis ogg gnome gtk X qt kde motif 
opengl mozilla

Which evolution ebuild did you use?  I'm forwarding this bug to Grant who may be
able to point you in the right direction.

For palm support 1.0-r5 still needs to be used.  

The workaround for evolution-mail crashing is, after installing, start up evo
and then immediately shut it down.  When you restart evo everything should
work correctly.  See bug #10
